I agree, I think he goes until he feels he can’t give anymore, whatever the timeframe.The 7 years thing is almost certainly a coincidence.
There will likely be a natural transition/"overhaul" in 3-4 years when Mané/Firmino/Salah/Wijnaldum/Henderson/Matip enter their 30's.Not sure if his break every 7 years is aligned with his belief that a coach get less effective the longer he stay at a club (unless there is a overhaul of the playing staff)
He won't countenance a move to Bayern. Talk about a right kick in the gonads for all things Dortmunder! It's the national team job that I fear. A nice part time little earner that one. And let's face it, the man has earned a decent semi retirement. Not yet though. He has many more conquests to make at L4.What’s left for Jurgen after Liverpool? Well, it’s all up to him and what he fancies, but I can’t see beyond Bayern Munich, the German National team, or retirement.
Barcelona and Real Madrid are plastic. Where’s the soul? Jurgen is a flesh and blood excellent man in every regard, and I can’t see him managing either of those two, or PSG, and he won’t take another English club after Liverpool. Arguably there’s Juventus if he wants to try another country, but I’m really not seeing it. He will stay at Liverpool or go back to Germany, in my opinion. But it’s years away!
city probably marked down that payment as £100,000.000 and it was more likely £! . City aren't making much noise about it for fear of FFP .The spy gate thing is potentially a concern. Agreement was reached and a line drawn under it, but I’m not sure to what degree things can be opened up again. Also, I’m not sure about the nature of the indiscretion, as at the time we plucked a couple of Man City employees. In high level industry when someone leaves, there are often mechanisms in place to prevent any transfer of knowledge. Sometimes it’s as brutal as being escorted out of the building and so on.
I don’t know if there was a grey area, and the City employees were working their notice and still had access to the database and whatnot.
Anyhow, we paid it off, without admitting wrongdoing, but I don’t know how much leverage there is for it to still bite us. I would imagine Man City will be happy for it to become a story, given their own FFP issues.
PEA is 30 years old and on something like 300k a week. If we wanted him, we would have done so when Arsenal signed him, or again last summer when they were prepared to move him on.This is probably a far cry from a rumor lol But if Sadio happens to become alot more intrigued by Barca or Madrid (which I dont really see happening anytime soon), Mourinho is right, Aubameyang could be the perfect fit on the left...
“I think Aubameyang probably likes to play in the middle because he feels that he can score more goals. But maybe he can score as many goals playing on the left.
“What happens in Liverpool, Firmino drops back, in between the lines. Then he gives more space for Salah and Mane to attack these diagonals.
“I could see Aubameyang playing on that left-side for Liverpool and scoring a lot of goals. Arsenal, Lacazette doesn’t have that quality.”
Yeah, I rate Auba, but that ship has sailed a long time ago.PEA is 30 years old and on something like 300k a week. If we wanted him, we would have done so when Arsenal signed him, or again last summer when they were prepared to move him on.
He also wouldnt bring to the team what Mane does, other than perhaps goals. Mane does a lot more for this team than simply score.
I like Maddison as a player, but as a team we don't really utilise the position he plays in.So I heard on the internets that Liverpool might be interested in James Maddison of Leicester. Do you feel he would be a fit? Could he slot into that creative #10 role for us?
I think he is still quite raw and we would have to pay a premium price for him, likely over £70m, so I can't see it happening.So I heard on the internets that Liverpool might be interested in James Maddison of Leicester. Do you feel he would be a fit? Could he slot into that creative #10 role for us?
Doesnt sound anything like Milner.Maddison is likely someone considered as Lallana and/or Milner's replacement, but I think the club will probably have Aouar or Havertz higher on their list. Buendia of Norwich is another one who'll probably get some consideration.
Moreover, given that the club apparently passed on Maddison last summer when he was available at a reasonable fee also suggests that they've moved on to other targets.
Mané Firmino MbappeNo to Maddison for me. Good player, but don’t need him.
If one of our main front three leaves, say Mo wants to try his hand in Spain (I hope not) then at that point we need to look at the likes of Sancho and Havertz. We could buy one of them and keep the current front three.
The big dream is a Nike inspired Mbappe, but surely that’s a pipe dream!
If it is to do with international clearence, then it will be a fine. Sunderland got done for the same in 2014 with a fine, so precedence is setApparently an issue with international clearance for a player. Seems to be either Chirivella or VDB. Think it will most likely be a fine instead of being kicked out though.
